Being a 3rd year at NESL… I would say it depends… If you are looking to do well 1st year and are looking to transfer up, I would say go to NESL.  If you are content with Suffolk then I say go that direction.  Staying local within Massachusetts both NESL and Suffolk have comparable reputations but Suffolk has a greater alumni base to make connections and thereby increasing job prospects.  Hope that helps!

Good Information. Too many of you people on this board are always trashing schools, but with very little evidence to back it up. Just because a school is a tier 4 does not mean it is necessarily a bad school with bad job prospects. FCSL, yeah maybe. Cooley, OK. But, the way people trash schools on here, because they are not in the top 100 or t-14 even, immediately  and destroy them for absolutely no reason.

"Oh _____ is a tier 4, dont go!"

"Oh _____ is a tier 3, so it must be better than a tier 4!"

Many of you are delusional and think people are just going to school to make $$. Money is not everything.

I have no earthly idea what either of these schools are ranked, but I have strong Boston ties and know tons of Suffolk lawyers with good jobs. I know it's a VERY regional school where a job is far from a sure thing, but I've sincerley never met a NESL lawyer. Obviously this is anecdotal, but it comes from a large sample size, and many anecdotes.

I hear ya, I'm sure they are out there lmao. Just because two people on a message board haven't met them, doesn't mean they do not exist.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: which begs the question

Whichis better: attending a low ranking school like Loyola (california) with full scholarship and pampering or attending columbia outof pocket and with a post graduate morgage of $100,000.00 or more?

depends on the gap.  but barring idiosyncratic factors, no amount of money makes loyola a better bet than columbia.

No amount of money! come on!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: taking June LSAT for waitlists
« on: March 10, 2008, 02:09:13 AM »
My thought is, I'm 30, so I am not waiting a year.  My LSAT was fairly late, my apps were fairly late, combine that with this cycle when many people will be waiting long, and the truth is, I will probably be waiting for a bunch of schools into the summer.  And if retaking that test might be the difference between going to Pace, and going to Brooklyn, Rutgers-Camden, or Fordham PT, why not?  It doesn't seem like there is really a downside except for the extra work, and I do think I have a chance of doing decently better than my previous 159. 

Damn, you're 30! That's old as hell for law school isnt it? 3 Years and u'll be 33 before u get a job in law, damn kid!

There was not a lack of clarity. I was just simply saying.

Getting the job and keeping the job are two different things. They do not give you stats for that.

75
Of course not. It's the prestige, network, and access to an excellent education. While a job (biglaw or anything else) is certainly not the complete end, the process of finding one is also less stressful without the pressures and insecurities of having to graduate within the top x% for a competitive advantage for summer jobs, internships, etc.

Can someone TITCR me? Cheers.

Everyone always acting like the best way to get a job is to not have any pressure on you. If you are basically guaranteed a job, more than likely, you are going to work less and with less desire (not everyone, but there will be people who are cocky just because they got into a t-14 or even a t-100.) The best thing that could happen to a lot of people is to have to compete to just get a job. A lot of Ivy league boys get OWNED (PWNED) in court on a daily basis, because they rested on their laurels.

Food for thought..

The question is how many seats are actually left as we get closer to the application deadlines?

probably not many, and the priority is to the applicants who applied first.

78
if u go to LSAC, and look at the applications - based on which ones ud like to go to, there is a little deadline next to the application..instead of acting helpless, just point and click.

I thought these were the rankings I was supposed to be working off of http://www.cooley.edu/rankings/overall2007.htm Uh oh.

lmao. Best Rankings...EVER.

Thank you TJCCARDOCO, we work very hard every year to produce the rankings. It is always nice to hear from appreciative students.

Look for the new rankings in April.

Can't wait.
